Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith, acquires luxurious Brentwood home

Renowned musician Chad Smith, the talented drummer of the internationally acclaimed band Red Hot Chili Peppers, has made a remarkable addition to his already impressive real estate portfolio.

Smith recently acquired a stunning residence in the prestigious Brentwood neighbourhood of Los Angeles for a staggering $19.5 million, according to Dirt.com.

Nestled within the serene Westside hills, this remarkable property exudes an air of sophistication and elegance.

Crafted by expert artisans, the dark grey three-level house spans an expansive 855sq m, boasting a host of opulent features.

With wide-plank oak floors, custom iron windows, and exquisite bespoke cabinetry, every detail has been carefully curated to embody understated luxury.

The seamless integration of steel-framed glass doors effortlessly merges the indoor and outdoor spaces, allowing residents to embrace the iconic California lifestyle.

Originally built on speculation, the property first changed hands in 2019 when media mogul George Strompolos purchased it for $14.6 million.

After transforming the residence with the finest decor from DISC Interiors, Strompolos decided to list the property earlier this year for $21 million. Smith, enamoured by the refined charm of the house, swiftly acquired it for $18 million.

Demonstrating his deep appreciation for the impeccable design, Smith added an additional $1.5 million to secure all the exquisite furnishings, resulting in a total investment of an impressive $19.5 million.

Smith’s new abode boasts several standout features.

The chef’s kitchen is a culinary enthusiast’s dream, complete with elegant marble countertops and designer appliances.

A convenient mudroom offers direct access to the attached two-car garage, while the breakfast nook features built-in banquette seating for cozy gatherings.

The master suite, adorned with vaulted ceilings and a private balcony, provides a serene retreat.

One of the most lavish spaces in the house is the partially subterranean lower level.

This entertainment haven includes a state-of-the-art gym, a luxurious movie theatre, a stylish lounge, a well-stocked wet bar, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, and two indulgent guest bedroom suites.

Glass doors on this level open up to a meticulously landscaped lawn, featuring a bocce ball court and a children’s playset, ensuring ample opportunities for recreation.

The terraced backyard offers a separate brick patio shaded by a majestic sycamore tree, while an infinity pool provides a serene oasis overlooking the lush surroundings.

Nestled below the pool is a tranquil gazebo, inviting moments of reflection and relaxation.

As Smith embarks on this new chapter in his real estate ventures, he currently resides with his wife, Nancy, in the coveted Point Dume area of Los Angeles.

With nearly two decades spent in their gated estate, the couple has found solace and privacy.

Additionally, they own a remarkable vacation home in the Hamptons, which garnered attention when it was listed for sale a few years ago.
